"This book is robust, waterproof, comprehensive and enjoyable: an essential companion for anyone wanting to tackle the Rob Roy Way." Undiscovered Scotland review
This fixed-format ebook respects the original full-colour page layouts of the printed guidebook, while also enabling instant cross-references, searchable text and (if the user is online) web links.
The Rob Roy Way was recognised as one of Scotland's Great Trails in 2012 when the route was fully waymarked. Our third edition fully documents important route improvements including the offroad section from Aberfeldy to Grandtully and both the approach to, and bypass of, Callander. This ebook contains book further revisions made in 2018 with improved directions and fresh photographs.
The Rob Roy Way runs for 79 miles (127 km) from Drymen to Pitlochry along some of Scotland's finest lochs and glens, using historic footpaths, a cycle route, forest tracks and some minor road. Many places are linked with Scotland's most famous outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor (1671-1734). It offers superb scenery, and gets you away from the crowds following the West Highland Way.
